If you can charge your smartphone wirelessly, congratulations. You have arrived at the future, a time when the Herculean process of fumbling with a cable, inserting it into the bottom of your device, and waiting for the satisfactory tone feels archaic and silly. With one convenient, reasonably priced power pad, you can now set your smartphone down, wait for the ding, and go about your merry way. Cables are for suckers.
All eyes were on Apple this month, but that doesn't mean plenty of us aren't still thinking about Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the most anticipated phones of 2019, expected to be released early next year. If you're eagerly holding out for news on the Galaxy S10, here's everything we know (and think we know) about Samsung's next phone.
Samsung has confirmed the existence of a new smartphone with not one, not two, but three rear-facing cameras. Surprise, surprise; it's not the Galaxy S10 - and normal people will be able to afford it.
Samsung is no stranger when it comes to controversy and "exploding" phones. And while the convergence of mobile devices has been a great thing for consumers, no one wants the device they carry in their pocket to converge with a barbecue. A report coming via Reddit claims a Galaxy S7 Edge froze and then "exploded", adding further heat to an already charged safety record.
Apple has announced three new phones this morning, and we're here to put them to the test to see how much of an improvement they bring to what's already on the market. We're putting the upgraded iPhone XS and the 'budget' model iPhone XR to the test against Samsung's most recent flagship, the Galaxy S9.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 has been subject to a rumour blitzkrieg over the past few months. Everything from the number of cameras (allegedly five) to the CPU (a beastly Exynos 9820) has been leaked. Now, fresh details have emerged about the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Apparently, it will be Qualcomm's best and most powerful sensor to date.
DJ Koh has been at it again. After letting slip about the Note 9 before it launched, he has now also revealed some details about Samsung's highly anticipated foldable phone -- which is on track for being a world-first.
It doesn't have an official name, but it is generally referred to as the Samsung Galaxy X. These are the details we have so far.
Samsung's mobile division chief DJ Koh likes dropping bombshells. Last month, he casually revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 ahead of its official launch. Last night, during an interview with CNBC, he made some huge revelations about the fabled Samsung Galaxy X smartphone.
Apparently, the model will be available much sooner than previously thought with a launch event tentatively scheduled for early November. In the words of Koh: "It's time to deliver."
The Galaxy Note series is the quintessential stylus-equipped smartphone. This time around, Samsung has significantly enhanced the S Pen via Bluetooth functionality. It also boasts an improved camera, more RAM and a bigger battery than its 2017 predecessor. But is it worth the eye-watering starting price of $1499? Let's find out.
Last week, Samsung gave us a brief glimpse into what the future of Bixby might look like. We bore witness to the Galaxy Home -- a smart speaker containing useful functionality that may be capable of challenging Amazon and Google for AI Assistant domination.
Considering Bixby's shocking track record thus far, this probably came as a bit of a surprise.
Last month, we reported that the Samsung Galaxy S10 might come with five cameras - two in the front and three in the rear. Today, a fresh S10 leak has significantly bolstered this theory. If true, it means the S10 will almost certainly have a much better camera than the Galaxy Note 9 and might just be worth holding out for. Here are the details.
